Which oil would you choose to leave in forever.

I put 40wt redline in the 75 vette several years ago and plan to leave it. I have $2 valvoline 5w20 in the old 84 suburban and Mobil 1 sale oil in the 02 suburban.

I plan to continue to change the 08 mustangs oil every couple of years. I have to change the trans AM's oil every 3-6 months due to coolant contamination.

Schaeffer's or Amsoil in everything. Maybe Ams in the Cruze's gas turbo 1.4.

The oil you would leave forever is Pennzoil Ultra every 5k miles. Nailed it.

username " Crusher " is approaching 100,000 miles on the Amsoil in his 2001 Expedition (or was it an Excursion?)

He does add oil when he changes filters.

But, really - a good bypass oil filter should keep the "mostly" good *forever* if used for a lot of highway miles and use low sulphur fuel.

I have personally seen a Chevy 350 (1993 model 1500 PU) run well over 50,000 miles on one oil change of Mobil 1 10W-30....

That truck eventually went over 200,000 miles and still ran fine.

.... so there you go.

I'd buy an electric car.

Can't wait for Porsche to start implementing their Mission E technology across the line. Sign me up for an electric 911. Hang the battery out back -Tradition.

For true apocalyptic conditions, I’d go for some Xw-40 or Xw-50 probably a HDEO, full saps, stupid high tbn. Also sold by the pail, so there’s a decent chance of finding a 5 gallon supply in a warehouse somewhere.

I believe the question was leave in forever. Not a brand to use forever.


I would probably go with Amsoil SSO
